Review: An Idiot in Love: A Novel

An Idiot in Love: A Novel An Idiot in Love: A Novel by David Jester
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Review: (Book Description after the review)

I really loved the humor and awkward situations Kieran continued to find himself in as he searched for someone, something? An Idiot In Love by David Jester was a wild ride through Kieran's live life beginning with his first kiss and going through things many of us might can relate to (some not so much, but still a bit funny).

The story was more lighthearted and funny in the child and teen "awkward" years of sex & love. Funny stories, and awkward situations that most of us know someone who might have had a similar horrid thing happen.

Towards the end of the book I did become less entertained, and even a little hopeless for Kieran's clueless state that ideally should have changed and not gotten quite as desperate. I feared the book was about to take an even worse turn (worse than mental health faking even?!?).

I always hate "spoilers" but it's iften hard to explain your opinion without them. Let's just say hilarious kid, funny awkward teen & early adult relationships progress to desperation that could have been avoided at times with some speaking up, then to complete desperation I was worried was going to end very badly BUT the endo g was good and I enjoyed the journey.

I received this book from Skyhorse Publushing for the purpose of providing an honest review.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

"Raw, raunchy, laugh-out-loud funny, and surprisingly affecting, An Idiot In Love is a deeply relatable page-turner. The honesty, candor, and humor of David Jester's prose is something to be admired and enjoyed. I loved this book!" —Davy Rothbart, author of My Heart is an Idiot and creator of FOUND magazine

Kieran’s love life didn’t get off to a good start. He threw up after his first kiss; he was beaten up by the first girl to have a crush on him; and after a mix-up with his first love letter, he could only sit back and watch as the entire school mistook him for a brutal murderer. By the time the hormones kicked in, Kieran had all but given up on love, but the worst was yet to come.

Relying on advice from friends who are just as dumb and just as clueless, Kieran weaves a stuttering, stumbling path through the world of adult dating. He lacks decorum, charisma, confidence—everything he needs to succeed. Despite that, there is one girl who changes him, one girl who eases his nerves and gives him hope. She is everything he had hoped for: beautiful, generous, funny—and she didn’t turn tail and run when she first saw him. But then, she disappears. Will Kieran find her again? And if he does, can his luck hold long enough to make a relationship with her last? What are the chances that all the mishaps and misadventures that go before, between, and after will put him off dating for good?

An Idiot in Love chronicles a series of unfortunate sexual encounters and relationships that every reader can appreciate and sympathize with.

GRAND FINALE BLITZ: Carousel Nights by Amie Denman (Harlequin Heartwarming)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.


Book Tour Grand Finalefor

Carousel Nights
By Amie Denman


We hope you enjoyed some amusement park magic and learning more about June and Mel's story. 





Don't forget to grab a copy of the first book in the series while it's on sale!

If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now...


Launch - The Starlight Point Stories



When I was a college student, I escaped textbooks and spent my summer days working at an amusement park. My experience four summers in a row became the inspiration for Starlight Point Stories published by Harlequin Heartwarming.


I Am A Reader - Summer Love



Have you ever fallen in love in the summer? I fall in love with summer every year, but I actually fell in love during summer when I worked at a seasonal resort and amusement park much like the fictional Starlight Point in my Harlequin Heartwarming series. In case you’re one of those people who likes to skip to the happy ending, I’ll let you off the hook right now. I’m still in love with the same man more than twenty years later.


Wishful Endings - Excerpt



Mel felt the air change the moment her gaze swung to him. He wasn’t foolish enough to think she brightened because of any reason except one: he was key to getting things done around Starlight Point. And she had a project in mind.


Hardcover Feedback - Review



"All in all, this was a great read. Perfect for a day at the beach, relaxing by the pool, or anytime really. I definitely recommend the book to any fan of contemporary romantic fiction."






Katie's Clean Book Collection - Sisters



If you have siblings, you know how much they contribute to shaping you as a person. I have three sisters with whom I’ve always been close, and I know that they have influenced me—almost always in a good way! The four of us even have a vague pact to end up in a bungalow in Key West together someday to raise a margarita glass to our gray hairs. My Starlight Point series focuses on romance, of course, but the relationship between the three siblings who inherit an amusement park is also close to my heart.


underneath the covers - Excerpt





"Mel’s familiar scent—Dial soap mixed with a little bit of sweat and motor oil—tingled her senses even with a hundred other distractions. Of course he was hard to ignore. He was standing so close their clothing touched."


Book Lover in Florida - Excerpt



Having a good partner made a difference the size of the peninsula Starlight Point sat on. June was light and graceful, her love for the movement clear in every step and sway. Leading her as a dance partner was like being behind the wheel of a Ferrari. The only way he could go wrong was if he lost control.


EskieMama Reads - Promo







Harlie's Books - Review



"All that makes for a great story. June and Mel were getting a second chance at love but some really big decisions needed to be made? Did I have my doubts? Nope, I knew that Ms. Denman wouldn’t do that to me. 😉 She wrote a heartwarming book that had the characters, emotional depth, and an amusement park. And dancing. 🙂"


Reading Is My SuperPower - Review



"Carousel Nights is fun and sweet and swoonworthy with some really great kisses and a really great setting. The chemistry between Mel and June is one that comes from years of knowing each other, from years of being in love, and yet it feels new and electric. The tension of running an amusement park – the crackle of the radio signaling another breakdown or emergency – keeps the action high and the pace steady."


Christy's Cozy Corners - Review



"I love this story and these characters! There is so much life in this book. The romance develops quickly but not in an unrealistic way since June and Mel have known each other forever. You will love reading this story! It is so sweet and heartwarming. I highly recommend it!"


With Love for Books - Review



"Amie Denman has chosen a fantastic setting for her series. She brings Starlight Point to life with vivid descriptions of the park itself and the plans to make it successful again. I fell in love with the place straight away. Amie Denman's writing flows easily and it was fun to read about the rides and everyone's response to them. It feels like the main characters really belong in the amusement park, which is something I loved about Carousel Nights. I also liked the sweet romance very much and highly recommend this lovely book."


Bookworm Lisa - Starlight Point Amusement Park







In Carousel Nights, you’ll meet June Hamilton. She shares ownership of the family amusement park Starlight Point with her brother and her sister. Only twenty-five, she does not plan to settle in and devote her life to roller coasters, cotton candy, and the beach resort. She wants to keep dancing on Broadway, but she comes home for the summer to lend her talent to the live shows at Starlight Point.


Thoughts of a Blonde - Review



"5 STARS! Feels like a homecoming when you read a book that portrays such a sweet reunion!"

BOOK tour ~ RETURN TO MARKER RANCH by Claire McEwen! This is an adult contemporary romance

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.


Tour Grand Finale for

Return to Marker Ranch
By Claire McEwen


We hope you enjoyed coming along with us as we got to know a little about Lori's and
Wade's stories! If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now...


Launch - Welcome to the Return to Marker Ranch tour!



I am so excited to launch this book into the world. It is a very emotional story straight from the heart, with some big issues and two characters with a lot of healing to do. But even though my hero and heroine go through some hard times, I feel like ultimately it’s a very uplifting book about two very strong people who learn to lean on each other, who open themselves up to love and life, and who find acceptance and happiness along the way.






Becky on Books - Interview



If you had to “sell” your book in a single Tweet, what would you say?

Tweets are hard for a wordy writer like me! Okay, how about this:

A veteran battling PTSD. A heartbroken rancher struggling to prove her worth. And a love strong enough to heal them both, if they let it.


Nicole’s Book Musings - Excerpt



Dakota’s short, choppy gait took them quickly up the hill toward the well and the irrigation valves. The flaking gray metal of the storage tank came into view. Lori veered the mare alongside it and peeked at the gauge. And felt her heart stutter. “No…” she breathed, staring at gauge. “You’ve got to be kidding me.”


Mythical Books - Things You Can’t Learn From Books



In my new book, Return to Marker Ranch, Wade Hoffman is home from war, back on the family ranch, trying to figure out how to raise cattle. You’d think someone raised on a ranch wouldn’t have to learn too much about how to be a rancher. But Marker Ranch wasn’t an ordinary ranch. It was hideout for criminals, a meth lab, and a storage facility for the stolen property that Wade’s father and older brothers hid there.


Brooke Blogs - Lori Allen’s Ten Tips for Surviving a New Job



Many of us feel a little lost the first time we take on a leadership role. So Lori has put together a few tips, to help us handle the ups and downs of that transition.


EskieMama Reads - Review



"Loved the book and how it took me through what both have gone through and managed to sill love one another."


Thoughts of a Blonde - Review



"In Book 2 in her Sierra Legacy series Claire McEwen takes us back to Marker Ranch to bring us Wade’s story. It was fun to see Nora & Todd again and to see Wade continue on his journey to healing from his PTSD that we saw him start in Book 1."


23 Review Street - Review



"Return To Marker Ranch is a unbelievable story that tackles topics that really get to your heart and mind, making you feel a range of emotions. I would recommend that anyone who loves a romantic, sweet story with passion should definitely read this book!"


underneath the covers - Excerpt



“What the…” She stood up in the stirrups, trying to get a sense of the size and scope of the thing. And then she jerked Dakota to a halt at the sight of barbed wire. They’d reached the rusted old fence marking the far northern boundary of her family’s ranch. The new tank was on the other side. On Marker Ranch. The Hoffmans’ land, abandoned for the past decade.


Colorimetry - Introducing Snack the Dog







When Lori Allen, the heroine of my new book, Return to Marker Ranch, was going through a rough time, I knew she needed a special dog too. A dog who would bring her out of her protective shell and teach her what she needed to know about living. So I sent her a dog named Coyote Snack. Or Snack, for short.


deal sharing aunt - Interview



What would you like my readers to know?


My books are published by Harlequin, and sometimes I think people don’t want to give Harlequin books a chance because they assume the books will be old fashioned, or like what your grandmother read. Honestly, before I got to know Harlequin better, I felt that way! But trust me, this is not your grandmother’s Harlequin! I feel like the series I write for, Superromance, is incredibly modern. They let me take on all kinds of issues in my stories that other publishers might shy away from. I absolutely love how the editors encourage creativity and powerful writing in our books. I try to read many of the Superromance books written by other authors and I always love them, and find them far more interesting than many of the other romance novels out there. If you’d like to learn more, we have a blog at www.superauthors.com and we’d love it if you stopped by!


Wishful Endings - East of the Sierra







My new book, Return to Marker Ranch, takes place in my fictional town of Benson, California, nestled against the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada. People often ask me why I set my books out there. And the only answer I can give is “Because I love it.”


Harlie's Books - Review



"This series is fast becoming another one of my favorites. I have to admit that I live in Texas and so cowboys, etc. just aren’t that exciting for me anymore. I know, yall can kill me later but there is something about Ms. McEwen’s heroes and heroines that I can’t get enough of. She writes them with emotional depth and while, their ranches are important, each one of them is dealing with bigger issues than just ranching or horses."


Beck Valley Books - Horses and Veterans







One of my favorite parts of writing Return to Marker Ranch was researching the way that animals can help heal people. Specifically people suffering from PTSD. My hero, Wade Hoffman, has PTSD from his tours in Afghanistan. If you read the first book in this series (and you don’t have to, each book stands alone) you’ll be very familiar with Wade’s troubles!

This wild stallion can't be tamed 

Todd Williams is still the naive idealist he was in college. Only now he's endangering lives—Nora Hoffman's to be exact. Nora hasn't seen Todd since he decided that saving the rain forest was more important than their relationship. Until the night she's nearly crushed by the stampede he causes. Now Todd is determined to make amends, for everything. 

She may not agree with his methods, but even Nora can't deny the importance of his fight to save the wild horses. With the attraction between them still sizzling and the fate of the horses in the balance, Nora must decide just how much she's willing to risk.







Claire McEwen lives by the ocean in Northern California with her family and a scruffy, mischievous terrier. When not dreaming up new stories, she can be found digging in her garden with a lot of enthusiasm but, unfortunately, no green thumb. 

Claire enjoys discovering flea-market treasures, walking on the beach, dancing, traveling, and reading, of course! She loves to write complex heroes and heroines, who grow and find themselves through their search for love.

That's Not Fair!: Getting to Know Your Rights and Freedoms by Danielle S McLaughlin, Dharmali Patel (Illustrations)

That's Not Fair!: Getting to Know Your Rights and FreedomsThat's Not Fair!: Getting to Know Your Rights and Freedoms by Danielle S McLaughlin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


That's Not Fair by Danielle McLaughlin is a fun and educational read for children about how and why we have certain laws and certain freedoms in our country - U.S.A. This book will be a great way to introduce young people to democracy at a young age.

Via a fictional town and it's quirky characters, basics of our system / democracy, freedoms, and the process and need for certain laws are explained in a fun and easily understood way. The book has bright and exciting illustrations that represent the character's feelings and convey their feelings which bring about the need for laws, and why those laws (freedoms) exist to help make life as fair as possible for citizens. Each chapter ends with questions for the reader to consider to get the reader thinking about how the law helps, who still might not feel it is fair, or what the common good may be for the population.

The situations and characters are funny, teach valuable lessons, and explain why we have certain freedoms, how democracy works, as well as what it might be like if we did not have certain laws. I was glad to receive this book free for an honest review and enjoyed the way our process of making law is demonstrated for younger people in an easily understood and entertaining way. I love this book, the expressive illustrations, and the easy to understand way democracy is demonstrated for upper elementary or mid schoolers.



View all my reviews


This unique addition to the CitizenKid collection, written by by Danielle S. McLaughlin, provides an accessible exploration of the rights and freedoms of citizens in a democracy through a series of six short stories starring Mayor Moe and the councillors of a sometimes wacky city. In each story, the councillors are first presented with a problem, and the group then makes a decision to address the problem with a new law, only to discover later there were unintended consequences. There is one councillor, Bug, who objects to each decision being proposed by commenting, ?That's not fair!? --- a sentiment familiar to children, who have an innate sense of justice. The topics are child-friendly: Should you be allowed to search someone's bag because you think they have something of yours? Does it make sense to have a law that states people can say only nice things? Conclusions for each story include an extended discussion of the rights and freedoms featured in the story, along with three questions to ponder: Why did the councillors make their decision? Did the new law achieve its purpose? Were there any unexpected results? There are no right answers given. Instead children are encouraged to look at all sides of each issue, which engages their critical thinking skills and fosters empathy for other points of view. This book would be perfect for sparking spirited discussions on civics lessons and inspiring children to become involved citizens. The bright and humorous illustrations by Dharmali Patel keep the interest level high. A Note for Parents and Teachers and definitions of the rights and freedoms covered in each story are included at the end of the book.

EXPERT Interview on Andrew Joyce book Resolution ~ Huck Finn's Greatest Adventure





My name is Andrew Joyce and I write books for a living. Lisa has been kind enough to allow me a little space on her blog to promote my new novel RESOLUTION: Huck Finn’s Greatest Adventure. I think it’s a good book, but what do I know? Anyway, I’m kinda shy about tooting my own horn. So I think I’ll turn things over to my dog Danny—Danny the Dog. He always has an attitude and usually does not speak highly of me. But please understand that we co-exist as the old Soviet Union and the United States once co-existed. We tolerate each other. So without further ado, here’s Danny.



Andrew begged me to come along with him so that I could help him out. For a person that works with words for a living, he has very little to say in real life. He wants me to tout his book for him, but I don’t think I will. Instead, I think I’ll tell you about our latest adventure. We’re always having adventures. I like to write about them and what I write is 100% true.



20160114_170410



Ahoy all you landlubbers, It’s me Danny the Dog. I live on a boat with my human who I’ve already alluded to. Now, I do know for a fact that mostly humans read The Empresses blog, but my writing is usually geared to my fellow canines. Having said that, I’ll tell what I’ve been up to the last couple of days.



Andrew, and I get along for the most part. And as far as roommates go, he’s not too bad. However, as most of my dog friends will attest to, humans can be trying at times. For instance, take the situation concerning our bed. Well, on boats they’re called bunks. Don’t ask me why, it’s just something a silly human made up a long time ago.



On boats, you don’t have a regular mattress. One sleeps on foam rubber and there lies the rub between Andrew and I. I’m sure all my canine friends know where I’m going with this. But for my human readers, I’ll explain. There are very few things more enticing then foam rubber to a dog. It’s like dog catnip, if that makes any sense.



Allow me to digress for a moment and set the scene for you. I like to sleep outside on the deck most nights—unless it’s raining. But I spend my days indoors in the air conditioning. So every morning after our walk, I go into the boat and jump up on the bed, or bunk if you will. Then I start to paw at the sheets until I uncover a corner and then I’ll rub my snoot on the foam. Man, does that feel good. Of course, Andrew freaks out, but what else can you expect from a human. He puts the sheets back in place and calls me a few choice names, but it’s worth it. And the funny thing is I only like to do it in the morning. The rest of the day, I get on and off the bed and don’t even think of that luscious foam rubber lying just under the sheets. Now on to bicycles, or to be more precise let’s talk about Andrew and the one and only time he took me along while he rode his bike.



Andrew is not much for physical exertion; in fact, he’s down right indolent. But this morning as he was getting ready to ride to the other side of the marina (I told you he was lazy), I started barking at him to take me along. Usually when I do that, he leaves the bike and we walk. However, this morning he took me by the leash and off we went, him on the bike and me trotting alongside.



Now I know why he was hesitant to take me with him when he’s on the bike. I crisscrossed in front of him many times and every time he had to put on the brakes so he wouldn’t run into me. And when I wasn’t doing that, I’d stop to smell an especially intoxication scent, almost pulling him off the bike. When we got home, he told me that was my last time accompanying him while he rode the bicycle. But that’s okay. It was just a training exercise; I caused him all that grief on purpose and he responded as I knew he would. I much prefer walking, I can take my time sniffing, and every once in a while I turn up a treasure, like an old chicken bone. Andrew won’t let me eat them, but I get a crunch or two in before he takes them away.



We just got back from visiting some friends on the far side of the marina—we walked. It pained Andrew to have to walk all of one hundred yards, but I had a blast. I found a rib bone and had most of it eaten before Andrew got it away from me.



That’s about it for now. I must hurry home. My favorite television show is about to start—old reruns of Lassie in black and white. They don’t make shows like that anymore.



Oh yeah, I almost forgot—go out and buy Andrew’s book and make an old man happy.



Resolution-800 Cover reveal and Promotional



It is 1896 in the Yukon Territory, Canada. The largest gold strike in the annals of human history has just been made; however, word of the discovery will not reach the outside world for another year.

By happenstance, a fifty-nine-year-old Huck Finn and his lady friend, Molly Lee, are on hand, but they are not interested in gold. They have come to that neck of the woods seeking adventure.

Someone should have warned them, “Be careful what you wish for.”

When disaster strikes, they volunteer to save the day by making an arduous six hundred mile journey by dog sled in the depths of a Yukon winter. They race against time, nature, and man. With the temperature hovering around seventy degrees below zero, they must fight every day if they are to live to see the next.

On the frozen trail, they are put upon by murderers, hungry wolves, and hostile Indians, but those adversaries have nothing over the weather. At seventy below, your spit freezes a foot from your face. Your cheeks burn—your skin turns purple and black as it dies from the cold. You are in constant danger of losing fingers and toes to frostbite.

It is into this world that Huck and Molly race.

They cannot stop. They cannot turn back. They can only go on. Lives hang in the balance—including theirs.

This is Andrew again. On behalf of Danny and myself, I would like to thank Lisa for having us over. It’s been a real pleasure.
